The 6.2-liter V8 powerplant generates 490 horsepower (495 hp with the optional Z51 Performance Package), mated to a new eight-speed dual-clutch automatic. If you opt for the Z51 Performance Package, Chevrolet claims it can hit 60 mph in under three seconds, and for comparison, the current C7 ZR1 hits the same speed in 2.8 seconds.
